Phase 3 – Inspiration

Download this guide as shortform in pdf format

The goal of Inspirometer is to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of your meetings. 

Through Phases 1 and 2 of the implementation, you will have established your meetings on a sound footing. Phase 3 is about building on those foundations to identify where (and what forms of) best practice in meetings can provide further benefits, and to support you in implementing that best practice.

For those organisations beginning to suffer meeting overload, it is about sustained reduction of meeting time through enhanced effectiveness. For organisations who feel they have about the right level of meetings but want to achieve greater impact through them, it is about increasing participation and engagement through them. In both cases these are brought about by adoption of best practices and deployment of responsibility for good meeting behaviours.

The key questions for an organisation progressing through Phase 3 are: Can we see real improvement trends? Is there much clinic activity/adoption? Is participation improving? Are there coaching programmes taking place? And is review systematically established?

Key elements of Phase 3 include the adoption of a model of meeting effectiveness, to provide a practical structure and strategy for improvement, and active utilisation of the meetings clinic to explore and adopt elements of best practice within that.
